God

God is the Creator and Ruler of the universe. He has eternally existed in three persons: the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. These three are co-equal parts of one God. We believe that through faith in Jesus, we are granted an eternity with God in heaven. (Genesis 1:1Genesis 1:26-27Genesis 3:22Psalm 90:2Matthew 28:191 Peter 1:22 Corinthians 13:14)

Jesus

Jesus Christ is the Son of God. He is co-equal with the Father. Jesus lived a sinless human life and offered Himself as the perfect sacrifice for the sins of all men by dying on a cross. He arose from the dead after three days to demonstrate His power over sin and death. He ascended to heaven and will return again to reign as King of Kings and Lord of Lords. (Matthew 1:22-23Isaiah 9:6John 1:1-5John 14:10-30Hebrews 4:14-15,1 Corinthians 15:3-4Romans 1:3-4Acts 1:9-111 Timothy 6:14-15Titus 2:13)

The Holy Spirit

The Holy Spirit is equal with the Father and the Son as God. He is in the world to draw people to a belief in Christ and empower us for personal growth. He lives in every believer from the moment of salvation and provides the Christian with power for living, understanding of spiritual truth and guidance in doing what is right. (2 Corinthians 3:17John 16:7-13John 14:16-17Acts 1:81 Corinthians 2:121 Corinthians 3:16Ephesians 1:13Galatians 5:25Ephesians 5:18)

The Bible

The Bible is God's Word to all men. It was written by human authors under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit. It is the without error and the ultimate source of truth for Christian beliefs and living. (2 Timothy 3:16-172 Peter 1:20-212 Timothy 1:13Psalm 119:105Psalm 119:160Psalm 12:6,Proverbs 30:5 )

Salvation

Salvation is God's gift to you if you'll accept it. We can never make up for our sin with self-improvement or good works. It is only by trusting in Jesus Christ as God's offer of forgiveness that you can be saved from sin's penalty. Eternal life begins the moment you receive Jesus Christ into your life by faith.
